Course content

This course is for you if you’d like to work as a clinical supervisor for clinical practitioners delivering low-intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) interventions to children and young people in NHS and/or school settings.

You’ll gain the knowledge and skills needed for your role, and to ensure safe and ethical practice. The course combines academic study with a clinical placement and experience of supervision.

This course is offered in partnership with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, providing a range of mental health services across the South of England.
